NYU College of Global Public Health Associate Professor Danielle Ompad collaborated with the Digital Studio’s educational design technologist Sharon Kay to develop a course for the CGPH’s Master’s program in Public Health.
ITP Camp is a four-week evening and weekend program that offers professionals and students a chance to get their feet wet with cutting-edge technologies. The emphasis is on using technology to turn ideas into reality, and encouraging students to create physical representations of their ideas.
Instructional technologists consult with faculty to help them determine the best ways to integrate innovative pedagogy and state-of-the-art media into courses.
While the addition of technology into teaching practices is a growing trend in curriculum design, providing support for faculty on effective implementation strategies is becoming an even more critical piece of the equation.
As NYU aspires to become a Global Network University, it faces challenges. How can we best offer advanced courses in the sciences at our global sites? How can we bridge the gap between instruction and research? How do we develop courses that relate to the specific locations yet have a global scope?
